Money making and art


First, I read this article by St├ęphane Baillargeon in today's Le Devoir. In it M. Baillargeon reports on the Statistics Canada research that shows arts administrators make more money than artists, and artists don't make diddly. Like anyone would have thunk otherwise, in other news 2+2 = 4, details at 11.

But, then Timothy Comeau at his Good Reads blog, pointed out, this article from The Sydney Morning Herald by Sunanda Creagh about being an artist on the dole in Australia.

That, then led me to this. Since I'm already an arts administrator (although I'm not making $44,186 by a long shot) it looks like I won't have to move to New Zealand.
